These can be revealed by the command: Contexts["Graphics`*"] Since you are probably only interested in one of these contexts (and simpler packages often only create one context) it is best to pick one context and get a list of the symbols it contains, for example: ?Graphics`Shapes`* Note that not every symbol will be an actual command. As your question implies, this technique is often more convenient that ploughing through the entire package documentation. David Bailey http://www.dbaileyconsultancy.co.uk
